Get the firehouse, or a good publicist, because it sounds like Gene Simmons’ recent behavior at Fox News has caused a firestorm of controversy that has reportedly landed him a lifetime ban at the network.
First reported by The Daily Beast, Simmons was at Fox News’ headquarters in New York City to promote his new book On Power when after he appeared on the morning show Fox & Friends and Morning with Maria, he proceeded to enter a staff meeting, pull open his shirt and tell those in attendance, “Hey chicks, sue me!”
To make things even more awkward, Simmons then told a series of pedophilia jokes about Michael Jackson and allegedly made rude remarks about the intelligence of two staffers while tapping them on their head with a copy of his book.
So far, a representative for Simmons, or Simmons himself, has yet to release a statement on these reports, but we’ll update this story once one is released, because it ought to be very interesting.
